Childless baking family, and soon-to-be cowless Jack bidding his friend farewell.

lovely mention for The Rivals (and well-deserved raves for costumes by resident artist David Burdick). show runs to october 30th at centerstage in baltimore. and those butterflies? printed by our own graphics department!
mathcat345:

Mrs. Malaprop had a butterfly theme. In her hair, on her dress, as the border for the wallpaper, and the portrait on her wall was of her in the very same dress.
I am looking forward to the rest of the season. I did thoroughly enjoy today’s performance. Normally, the theater is packed, so I am not certain as to why today’s audience was lacking in numbers.
If you’re in the Baltimore area, Center Stage offers great theater for a reasonable price.

Gavin Witt. The man behind the tumblr. And behind a gorgeous costume created right here in our shop. The costume shop is on the third floor, just down the hall from the thaumaturgy department.

[Editor’s note: It should be added that this costume, lovely as it may be, is not the customary daily attire in Thaumaturgy; we’re far more casual around here. And while it was constructed here on-site, it was created for a production of Wilder’s The Matchmaker and not in fact for 'Tis Pity. Which fact, if you’ve perused the interview with costume designer Candy Donnelly, should help keep you from getting mightily confused. Not to worry. Totally different shows, let alone designers. If you want a better…picture…of the look of 'Tis Pity, try this on for size.]
